Why our Fly Fishing Lessons will give you the edge

Catching Salmon, Steelhead or Trout on the fly requires precise skills which include presentation and proper casting. Without this you’re going to get easily frustrated and hookups will only be a dream. We want to share our skills with you and help you enjoy the beautiful art of fly fishing! Our experience with Salmon fly fishing and Trout Fly fishing goes back to the very early 90’s. We’ve spent countless hours on local rivers and lakes mastering proper fly casting techniques and we’ve caught a ton of fish too! We’ve studied the physics of fly casting and have a profound understanding of what makes a good cast and what makes a bad one. We will be able to help you understand the difference when you book fly fishing lessons with our pro staff. Our newest fly fishing guide Jason G has a very impressive resume with fly fishing. Jason represented Canada at the World Youth Fly Fishing Championship in France in July 2012, placed 33rd in the world and top Canadian. He also represented Canada at the World Youth Fly Fishing Championship in Ireland in July 2013, placed 20th in the world and top Canadian. We believe his skills and abilities to provide the best fly fishing lessons will greatly improve your fly fishing and casting abilities.
